Had a similar problem mate. I solved it by connecting the tv to the PT460 system with a scart lead. You then have to have the AV channel selected on the PT460 system to listen to the tv. You will always have to have the AV channel on the PT460 selected to listen to any sound transmitted through the tv - be it playstation/xbox or any other device that you may connect in the future with HDMI leads or otherwise. Hope this helps

    Your TV picture and the audio coming from the panasonic are 2 different things - they are not connected. I'll explain my set-up:

    Basically I have a scart lead running from my panasonic in to my EXT2/SCART2 connection of my TV. (My EXT1/SCART1 TV connection is used up by my satellite receiver box - this is my tv picture). The EXT2 Scart connection is therefore the connection I use to watch DVDs on the panasonic. In addition it also sends the tv's audio signal to the panasonic through the AV channel. Basically you should always have the AV channel selected on the panasonic for audio if you are connecting by scart. I use HDMI to connect my Playstation 3 to the TV and another HDMI to connect my Xbox to the TV.

    This is how it all works out:
    TV = EXT1 on TV for picture | AV channel on P'sonic for sound
    DVD = EXT2 on TV for picture | DVD channel on P'sonic for sound
    PS3 = HDMI1 on TV for picture | AV channel P'sonic for sound
    Xbox = HDMI2 on TV for picture | AV channel P'sonic for sound

    If you are connecting your TV to the Panasonic by the HDMI cable, you should simply be watching your HDMI input on the tv for picture and the AV channel on Panasonic for sound. Other than that you might need to check how your TV source is connected to your TV - are you connecting your cable/satellite receiver box to the TV properly? What are you connecting it with?
    You may also need to check the HDMI settings on the Panasonic on-screen menu to see if HDMI is enabled correctly.

Having just setup a SC-BT230 Home Theatre Sound System, the SURROUND and SOUND buttons on the remote have no effect, so we cannot change the sound modes


Sometimes these buttons only work for certain formats eg. a cd may not play with more than the front 2 speakers.
Also, when you press these buttons are you viewing the home cinema on your tv? It may require you to press the sound/surround button, navigate a menu to select the setting then press OK (this is how my Philips unit works)
Hope this helps.

For connections of audio, so that you can hear all tv audio through the
surround system, connect either an optical audio cable or red & white
analog audio cables from the tv to the home theater. If you are using
optical audio, there is a plug on back of tv labeled for digital audio
output and an input on the surround sound system. If you plan on using
analog red and white, use the PROG OUT red and white output jacks on the
back of the tv to the AUX input on the home theater.

For video connections, to get HD you will need to be using either HDMI or
Component cables. HDMI is the cable that will provided 1080p signal (the
best HD signal), but if the source does not output 1080p, then your tv
will not display 1080p. Most cable boxes output at 1080i or 720p when on
HD stations. This signal still provides great picture quality, but HDMI is
not needed to get these HD signals. You can use component cables for your
cable box and the DVD player output to the tv for video. HDMI might give
you a slightly better picture quality but the signal will be the same.

To make the connection, you will want to connect from the cable box to the
tv (component or hdmi). Also from the home theater system to the tv using
hdmi or the video cables from component (red, blue, & green cables).

We hope this information is helpful to you.

Thank You,

No picture on TV through Sky, Home Cinema is on but have sound.


do have sound and picture at same time you will need a fibre optical cable, you connect that from your cinema system to your tv. then you need to set your cinema system to digital input or fibre optic or check by pressing aux on your remote and see which is the right one. i am not familier with panasonic as i have samasung.

Panasonic HDMI surround system problem


The HDMI cable connection on your system is a video out to your TV.
To get audio from the TV so you can hear it through the system, you need to add a cable from the audio out of your TV to the "aux" input on the panasonic system.
This is most likely a red and white connection which will give you stereo, or pro-logic surround from the home theater system.
